Fauci doubts effectiveness of coronavirus vaccine in US due to anti-vaxxers

A total of 36 states are now seeing an increase in cases compared to the previous week. Asked how the U.S. is performing on contact tracing, Fauci said: "I don't think we're doing very well". I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around.

"We're not in the situation of New Zealand or Singapore or Korea where a new case is rapidly identified and all the contacts are traced and people are isolated who are sick and people who are exposed are quarantined and they can keep things under control", Dr Schuchat said in an interview with The Journal of the American Medical Association on Monday.

At the time of this writing, the United States is recording upward of 40,000 new confirmed cases daily, according to reports, and new outbreaks in states such as Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas account for at least 50% of all new confirmed infections across the country.

And while Dr. Fauci is a supporter of certain so-called "reopening" pushes, he noted that we are now experiencing the fallout from not doing so in a more responsible and "measured" way. We can't just focus on those areas that are having the surge.

Fauci's comments came in response to Sen. Fauci was responding to a question from Elizabeth Warren, who pressed him on what the final death toll might be. "I'm very concerned, and I'm not satisfied with what's going on because we're going in the wrong direction, if you look at the curves of the new cases".

He said that as states work to reopen businesses they should be cautious and work with health officials to ensure that proper guidelines are followed.

Also during the hearing, Fauci said he's "concerned" about how some states have gone about reopening their economies and said he's observed some states "skipping steps" on federal government guidelines. "We're in the middle of catastrophic outbreak, and we really do need to be guided by scientific principles".

"I think the attitude of pushing back from authority and pushing back on scientific data is very concerning", he said.

Countries including the USA are scrambling to develop a vaccine, and Fauci has said one could be available by the end of 2020 or early 2021. There are crowds, they're not physical distancing, and they're not wearing masks.

His rival, Democrat Joe Biden, on Tuesday launched a fresh attack on what he called Trump's "historic mismanagement" of the pandemic, arguing that the president could have saved lives and spared damage to the economy.

"I mean, for the Fourth of July, we could all show our patriotism with a red, white and blue mask, going out there and showing some strength", he said in an appearance on "Fox & Friends".
